I had never heard of Sloane Stephens before the tournament, but her game against Williams was very impressive. A star in the making, I reckon.

Congrats to BxB for running away with our comp, and to Srini and Illiniman, too. Nice write-up, too, LDV!

A tipper has petitioned the scoring judge for a review, stay tuned to see if the outcome changes.

While she made some big mental errors in the game with Serena, Sloane Stephens showed a lot of tenacity to battle back in later games and the match in general.

Sorry to be bursting in like this, but I am pretty sure I had Svetlana Kuznetsova in my side too...think I should be the one winning this smile

Edited to add: Read Bx's post later...think he meant the same as I did...sorry and thanks, Bx...

Thanks for running the comp and the quick fix LDV.

I would blame Caroline Wozniacki for being in that bracket, causing two people to pick an unranked player at the same time, and us having absolutely no faith in Wozniaki to play Championship level tennis anymore. I honestly could have seen 7 different women coming out of that wild bracket.

I did my best for immortality and hold all four Women's Tennis titles at once, but I must tip my hat to srini for his great picks, including 7 of the 8 Quarter-Finalists.

Good job with a solid point total illiniman that at other times might have won the competition and wwe for picking the most correct in the tournament.

  • He wins with an amazing 13/15 and 67 out of 107 points (62.6%).
  • In fact, if you factor in that nobody picked unseeded Jeremy Chardy to make the quarterfinals, he got 13/14 and 91.8%!
  • Second place goes to N-Bomb with strong picks as well, 13/15.
  • Third and fourth were separated by the tiebreaker with George95 pipping paper_aero for the bronze medal.
  • At the bottom of the pile we have ozzz2002 the only one of us not to get above 50% correct.
  • There were no real surprises here in the tournament with most of the top seeded players going through.
  • Congratulations to all the players for participating in the competition!

Nicely done gtho, and you didn't get bit by the curse for picking Andy Murray to win the tournament, lol.


WTG N-Bomb and George for medalling as well.


You're the best srini, and I think as the Champion of the most recent tournament you are more on the defense now lol.

Thanks again LDV for running the comp.
